Federal Disability Retirement: Beyond the Subjective/Objective distinction

by Robert R McGill - Never underestimate the power of “the law” – nor of a Federal bureaucracy in attempting to ignore or disregard the mandates of the law. It is incumbent upon the applicant to point out what the law requires, and to admonish the Leviathan of Federal Agencies to follow it – if not at the Initial Stage of the process, then at the Reconsideration Stage; and if not at the Reconsideration Stage, then at an appeal before the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board. For, never send to know for whom the bell of objective evidence tolls; it tolls for thee, in the very subjectivity of being the evidence itself.
